With V-Day approaching, it's time for a Cupid Shuffle. Of sorts.

A.K.A. the Mix Tape Shuffle for February: #LoveSongs edition, natch. This should be interesting, since I just don't do love songs. Even when I've been in relationships, I've never been part of a couple that had an "our song". But as it turns out, there are a few "romantic" tunes (well, romantic according to me, so make of that what you will!) up my sleeve for you to ejoy. Shhhh....don't tell anyone!

(NOTE: Grooveshark was giving me SO MUCH TROUBLE playing songs and getting them added that I finally decided to just hit YouTube instead. I needed to get this published and get to bed last night, after all! Feel free to listen to the ones you like/are interested in :) )

The Psychedelic Furs - "Heartbreak Beat"

The Cure - "Love Song"

Type O Negative - "Love You To Death"

Ramones - "I Want You Around"

Goo Goo Dolls - "Dizzy"

Metallica - "Nothing Else Matters"

Scorpions - "No One Like You"

Big Mountain - "Baby I Love Your Way" (I love Frampton's original version A LOT, but thought the reggae sounded happier!)

Paul McCartney - "Maybe I'm Amazed"

And at last....the song I consider the ultimate romantic/love song....

Peter Gabriel - "In Your Eyes"

And there you have it. Ten love songs, according to me. What are some of your favorites? Be sure to let me know in the comments! Better yet, make your own #LoveSongs post and participate in the Mix Tape Shuffle!

    1. Haha, we totally DIDN'T! I think she's another one of my musical soul sisters, though. I like a lot of what she likes.

    1. Sweet! Gahhhhh, they're one of my favorites. I wish they were still around - still can't believe Peter's gone.

  4. You know, Kim, one thing I seriously like about you... you are allover the chart, so to speak. I can't imagine there being a type of music that you couldn't find at least one song you like. I listened to all of these and remembered them all, even though ironically they don't all appeal. And with that said, I'm reasonably certain you'd find my music choices hitting you the same way. There's something good in every era of music. Of the ones here... I chose these five, in order of... yep, that's for me. I love Metallica. Type O Negative is the wild card for me. Normally wouldn't go there, but the band is so rocking. Looks like it was a good day here!!(smile)

    1. Thank you for listening! I know they're not all typical romantic or love songs, but they all work for me :)

      You are right. I usually have something in just about every era, every genre, that I like. I am definitely all over the place. I'm actually like that with everything from decor to clothing to makeup to design. Must be one of my main character traits! I can never choose just one style of ANYTHING!

  5. I know I will be stealing "Heartbreak Beat" for a Music Monday. That is my jam.

    Please bear with me. I used to come home after track practice (the song was out in the spring) my senior year about 5:30pm and flip on the tube and there was this obscure TV channel on my cable system. It was weird with community weirdness in the day and city council and school board at night. At 5:30pm, they had this college-radio music program and Heartbreak Beat was number one of their for weeks.

    Thanks for playing it.

  6. Whoa, there's some tough choices in yours... hmm, Metallica is a good one, there is just something about metal/hard rockers to sing a softie song. But the GooGooDolls and Psychedelic Furs? Great choices!!
